This hoofflel was originallp a contrihulhn lo fQloor Street 'Preshylerian 
Congregation h\: Rev. James Mcnzies, M.D., its Missionary to Honan. 
It Was edited hy the Chairman of its Missionary Committee as an esteemed 
privilege and lahor of love. A request has been made that a further edition 
be published by the F. tlf. iB. of the church at large, and that request 
has been gladly acceded to. 

The facts set forth in'^ this little emissary are the ' ' Acts of 
the Apostles" brought down to dale from Jar distant H^nan. 
There are \." 1 ransfigured Lives" there as n'c7/ as here; there are 
Twice-born Men " there as well as here; there are "Souls 
in Action ' ' there as well as here. The universalitv of the 

divine influence is a cardinal doctrine. !J)efore the day dawns the heavens 
are fdled nuth flaming ministers of radiant light fulfilling God's purposes ; 
and so before the day fully breaks on dark. China with its giant possibili- 
ties, we see the Jlashing glories o/ Qod's truth illuminating these 
messengers 'who, like torches, are lighted not for themselves but Jor 
others. So this booklet goes forth to speak f"' China. It is only 
a little foot-note to the " Great Command, " and of it onh a humble but 
practical exposition a testimony ako to its closing words. " Lo, I am 
with you alwav, even unto the end of the ages. ' ' tfifciv the word it 
speaks not return void, but mov // bring back lo Llonan and to ourselves t 
great and abundant fruition of good. 

Our best wisnes for the happiness and prosperitv of this r^Cis.sionary 
of the Church, his wife and helpers, go herewith, and may China '3 
millions in this generation, not only hear, hut k"0W that Truth which 
saves to the uttermost.

LI CHI CHING 

We Were talking: of fruit: here is a sample. ( Mie 
moi-ninj; ver_\- early a call came from the city to at 
tend a youn^ man who hiid heen set upon and hadlv 
handled. On i'eaehin<; his home 1 found a \nun'f man 
appai'eiitly well to do, l>in<,' on a hed, his clothes 
eovei-ed with some white powder. Both his (yes had 
heen >rou<,fed out witli scissors, and to make tin' matter 
sui'c (|uicklime had heen I'uhhcd into them. This was 
the lirst time I met l/i ('hi (hintr. We had him car- 
r'ied to the lios|)itaI, and attended to him as well as 
we could. Aftcf a time those terrihie iiashcs hcjijcd. 
hut his sic;ht was ^'oiic forever, it was hard to have to 
tell him he woidd ne\er see af/ain. Me. a vouult man 
enjo\ iui,' life to the full, diunk uilh its pleasures, 
never to see af^aiul He couldn'i stand it, the very 
thou^'ht was maddenintr He cnnid nut wecj), for the 

tear ducts had I n (piilc desti'o\i'd. an<I his teai'Icss 

a^'ony was ha I'd to see. .\ fter a time he '< came calmei' 
and. '.\ e uere o\i riovcci when h.e turU'd to the L(>!d 
Jesus for comfor't ;iiid salvation. 
I'ayo 'I'l'u 



The cluinfre in tlie iiuin li;is hccn so ^vcut that he 
is still the marvel of llwaichinj; Vu. Of what ho used 
to he, let his own words tell tlie dark story. "1 was 
well educated, and when m\- fathci- died he left rae 
with plenty of money, hut I was a protliijrate. I was 
known everywhei-e fi>r my dai'injr in wickedness, I was 
licentious, an opium smokei-. and the most expert 
iramhler in the cit,\. .My friends inside and outside 
the cit.\- wei-e vef\- iiian.w and they looked upon me 
as their leader. The leader of the rehels in South 
Udtian was once my hosom fi'ieiid.'' 

While still in the hospital, one day he said to me, 
"Doctor, 1 lia\c lieeii a <,M'ea1 sinnei'. N'o one ev.-r 
served the devij iiuire I'aitlifull.v than I. and he's i^'wou 
me my wa^es, 1 will never see with my eyes a^rain. 
.\ii(l now as sdoii as 1 am stronjz enou;j;li 1 am ^oii'^ 
||> stand in 1 1 w a idling' city heforc the Prefect's ya- 
mi'ii. and I am iroiui; to say tit the people :—'* You all 
know me; you know how well I sei'veil m\- master the 
de\il. and yon know, too, the wajjres he has paid me. 
I'>iit now 1 am ^roin^' to tell y(tu of the Saviour who 
souirht and found me. ;ind what He has done for mv 
soul." (tf course We did licit expect him to do anv- 
tliinir of the kind, for to a|ipear in puhlic at all, with- 
out liavinu: had xfui^'eance i)]\ his enemies, was more 
loss (if "face" than a Chinaman could stand Rut 
l.i ''hi riiintr meant it. and since then most nohly has 
he i-e(|ei'iiied his promisc. 

<)f course We often hcai of sui'h con\ersions at 
home in rhristian lands, wher.' men noted foi- their 
wickedness hccouie e;irncst rjinstian workers. I'.iit 
this was a Chinanuin, and an idol;di'i", a ^,'amliler,

OUR HOSPITAL EVANGELlJt . 

We were siltiuiT at worship one evenin<^ in the 
■'lii\i'f (Jod Temple" which was the oidy e<tnvenient 
placr I ronid ii'et to li\<' in at that time. I was elling 
of the siill'ei'inii's and de.dli of Clwist. and iiotieed hipr 
tejirs rollini:' down the cheeks of the man who ai'ted as 
coolie ;ind u-ateman, lie was a .Alohamiiiedan. the son 
of a .Mohammedan priest, and an opium usei". so this 
si;;ii of itcin<^' all'ecfcd hy the yrospcl did not count for 
iinich. for I Iia\e often lu'ard it said, "Then^s no use 
ill preaching' to those gospel hardened .Mohamme- 
ilans."" This. Iiy wa,\' of introduction to our hos|tilal 

,.».•! Ml''. ! is! ]\:\\ \V:!!! ^>!!J! 

(M the yr.-iis ihat pa>sed hcforc he was appointed 
as exanceljst Ihei-c is not much one r;iris to write. 



ex('Oi)t to sjiy tluit, like Li Clii Cliinjr, Mr. Biii luid his 
(JcthsciiKiiH' to p.iss tliroujrii. ITc know well wliat it 
\v;is to lit' despised iiiid fejeeted of men, a man of sor- 
rows and aeiiuainted with griet". When we went home 
on t"arh)u^'h the hos|)ital was eh)sed. His eldest son, 
a hright l)oy t'l'om whom we expected much, was then 
in school. One day he was bitten by a mad dog and 
died from that dread disease liydrophobia. A litth' 
later his youngest son also sickened and died. He 
might have been saved, but the hospital was closed. 
We know what it means at such a time to have the 
eomfort and support > I' Christian friends, l)ut in the 
hour of his soi-row no one went to speak a word of 
comfort or of hope, and the burying of his dead was 
left to be done by more kindly Mohammedans. 

Ilis wife too foi- a long time was little help to him. 
She was veiy dirty in her habits and showed no in- 
t(M'est in the gospel. Many a time I have heard her 
sj)oken of as being ]>ast all hojie of refoi-m. 

Now let me |>ut tlie matter in the form of a ques- 
tion. If, aftiM- you had united with the chui'ch. tlius 
alienating almost all youi- relatives and fri.'nds, you 
were cast out of the chui'ch by the whispering, back- 
biting and slander of the iiietubers, ignored 
by your pastor even when deatli twice visited 
your home, your wife unsympathetic, and your home 
ill-kept, what would you have done? We dai'e not 
answer that (picstion, but Mr. Hai had to 'inswer it, 
and much moi-e than 1 have written was done to I)rcak 
his h'.irt. lie h-iis cniiic tlii'DUtrh the fni'r.;ice iiui'ilied. 
and tl;osc who once despised him might well env\' his 
suc(-(>ss in wiriuing souls. 



For months now lie li;is liccn oni' I'iiit hful

No words can tell. iK'ttcr than liis own. llic phn-f lie

witliouf lioiiic or Ti'ieuds. He wjis tokl that the Lord 
Jesus is willing' to he a constant friend, and \villin«? to 
answer liis prayers. "Hut I (h)n't know h(tw to pi-ay 
to Iliiri,"" said Chou, so .Mr'. I>ai tooi< liini asiih' and 
taiijrlit Idiii the simple pi'ayer "Lord desus. save me 
and keep me. and take away my sins." Tiu; ohi man 
Went a\\a\ luumlilin^' his pi-ayer, not unlike a Hu(hL 
hist motd\ pei'haps; hut still he pi-ayed, and prayed 
to the < )ne who hears. 

Ill' hejiftred his way to a lar<,'e fair thii'ty 
miles awa\' and when he I'etui'ned he came to 
ehui'eli. He was so well di-essed that some one said 
to hit" "Say, ('h(»u. where did you ^ct those Jine 
clothes?" "Why, the Lord jjrot them for me." said 
he. " Vou know, the hist time I was here I learned to 
pi'ay, and now I just ask the liOi'd for what I need and 
lie sees that I ^'et it 1 I asked Iliiii to ^'ive me food, 
and I have never ^'one a da\- hun<rr\ : then as the 
weather is •zettin-:- cold. I ;isked Ilim for clothes, and 
see what lie has ^dxt'ti me. And now there is just (uie 
other thin<r I am askin<x Ilim for, and that is a |>lace 
wher'e I may lie down at n\>x\\\ and when the weather 
is had." One d;iy in jroiu}^ his I'ounds hi' came to Li 
<'hi ('hinjf's ^'ate. .Mr. Li. hejiririir there was a Mind 
man at the i:;ite. went out to talk to him, and old Chou 
told him his stor\'. "Well," said Mr. Li, "we have a 
meelini; fo:- prayer' her'e this al'terTiooii ; you may come 
and we will hear' you pr'ay." 

Hut the old man was suspii-ioiis of Mr'. Li and a 
little fiir'thcr' down the str'cet he was heard askinj^ tlu; 
people who that Mind man was, "for'," sjiid he, "1 
am suspicious of him. He invited me into his place to 



a meotiii^. Imt I iiiii .iPniid lie only wjiiits to ^'o throu^li 
my pocket." They ;issui-ed liim tliiit the otlier blind 
iiijin would ill no \v;i\- luinii him. "'So." said Mr. Li, 
as lie told the story, "there we were, two blind chaps, 
ea<'li suspicious of the other, and tryiuj; to tind out 
about the other." Hut old ("h..u turned up at tlie 
prayer meeting' and one of the i-esidts is, that from 
tliat day his thir<l petition has been answered, for Mr. 
Li has fjixM^n him a jdace to sleep, with breakfast, and 
more than that if \\w weather is bad. 

No one is more rejrular in attendance at <'liurcli, 
morninj; and afternoon, than this old man. and he 
always tries to remeiMbei' at least the (lolden Text. 

r>ut you say, what does an old blind be^fjar count? 
If Ih' is a (Christian, wliy doesn't he },'ive up licfijiin}?? 
Lei me tell you. old Cliou does count and counts for a 
^'ood deal too. How can an old blind man support 
himself in a land wlicn^ peoi)le with their eyes are 
starxinj;.' No. old ("lioii is a be^^'ar and is proud of 
it. Like I'aul, lie ma^Miilies his oHici'. He is now a 
chilli ol" 11h' Killer and he knows it. I?e<:j.'ars as a class 
are universally liatcMl. but no one now hates old Chou. 
Many peo|)le are ^dad to see him and hear him too, for 
he has constituted himself the Aposlle to the be^'fjars

ready to tell the jtcople ahoiil his conversion. 

I do not ri'iK'mliei' how many months he was with

W}is likely to lie iii)le to work ;i^'';iin , were very jingfy 
with him for heeoinin^' a Cliristian. When he re- 
turned to llis phlee of husineSS in the west, the peoph' 

there weiv just as hittei" against him when they h(>ar(l 
he was a Christian. There was not anotiier Christian 
in the phice. ;in(l ji,. coulil easily have kept (piiet .so as 
not to prejudice tlie peop],. a^'ain.st iiim. i)ut Lu was 
not that kind. From time to time we saw him. and 
oaeh time Ik- cjim,. lie brought an otVei'injjf of cash to 
iiejp us treat .some otlier jioor fellow as we had treated 
him. 

P)Usiness w;is |)oor. for the | pic ii(,ycotted his 

shop, they s|)i'ca(l evil reports ai)out him. they i-e- 
t'lised to let Ilim use watci' fi'om the villaiiv well; liut 
lai woi'kcd on and sold what iu'ead he could, and 
when he could not ,<:vt any one to listen t(» him outside, 
he would u-ather one or two into his own honu' and 
|>i-e;ich to them theiv Oil,. ,\;ty ji,. told us his wife 
had hccoiii,. ;i Christian. When ;i man "s relijjion .saves 
his wife, you mjiv look for something' to happen. 

Soon after, we left that station, and did not for 
some yc;irs see .Mr. iai ayjiin. i'.ut after a time, we 
\\i'\'r told that results were li,.in<i' seen, and the nns- 
si<uiarv in ch.irnv ,,f that iiehl reported that tln^re 
were at least sixty men in the district who were now 
Christians, led to Christ hy the haker Lu Vun^' Kwaii. 
Not a cent did ln' reccixc for pr.'achin^f. hut this poiu-

Her inotlier. <lisappoiiitt'(i over losing that dollar, or 
rather, disappointed at not ix'iiifr aMe to ^et rid oT 
her dauuliter, treated her very harsh.iy, trying by 
main force to sti'aighten out the crooked joints. 

Crippled with rheiiniatisin. her hip and knee 
joints have all grown so solid 1 fear she will never 
be able to walk again. Often suffi'ring great pain, 
she lies, or rather leans, against a hard pillow on her 
bed day after day. for she can neither stand nor sit 
nor lie down as a well jterson can. She was brought, 
to us some three _\-eai"s ago. in the liojie that we could 
straiiihten out her ci'ooked liml)s. but the best we have 
bee!i aiile to do so far for liei' ])oor body has been to 
case her sutVeiing. and to im|)rove her general 
liealth. 

l-'or a time there was in the hospital another girl 
named Chi Niu. whose eyes wei'e almost blind, and 

Ihese two I ame warm fi'ieiids. Chi \iu could not 

sec to I'ead. iiul she had willinsz feet, and so these two 
got along togcthei' with one pair of eyes and one jiair 
of feet, ('hi .\iu was to have !>een !iapti/.ed with llsin.

a lialf-idiot heathen. In hcf new home she has ol'teii
